Does that clear up what I was driving at?

I understand what your driving at but I don't agree. What I was referring to is the part of the audio archive that hosts audio that is not live concerts. Hosting full shows or even entire songs in mp3 in any part of the archive is not cool with me. A duck is still a duck by any other name.

Well I'm glad I kept asking so I could figure out what your position is and make sure that I was not misunderstood.

So, you would leave if a live music concert in a lossy format were uploaded to the OSA part of the website and the IA did not remove it? Given the open publishing policy of that section I can't help but imagine that it is inevitable that that occur, espcially in light of the situation at mp3.com.

I'm not going to directly respond to your question because I doubt archive.org intended for the OSA to become a way to circumvent the policies of its other audio sections, and have to believe that they would take measures to prevent that from happening.

Let me be as clear as possible: I don't want any live concerts or individual songs made available in mp3 on this site unless an artist has a policy of MANDATORY mp3 inclusion for their stuff to be made available here. Not my stuff, not anyone elses.
